When you can not get AC power to a Billboard

Here is a seemingly simple solution to providing illumination to that billboard which is nearly impossible to bring traditional AC electric power to the OOH site. Availability of power supply can be denied by municipality, permitting, lease, availability, safety and cost.

From the Operations Manager at Lamar Advertising Company, in Colorado Springs, CO., Chris Whitfield shares his knowledge and expertise on bringing in lighting.

“When you can not get AC power to a Billboard. …. share an install of alternative energy lighting that I performed yesterday on one of our structures in Northern Colorado. This system made for a clean install with 3 panels, 4 L.E.D lights, 2 batteries and a charge controller. Where there is a will there is a way.”
